Bellini's serves pretty good Italian food and everyone in our group of 14 really enjoyed the break from eating primarily Filipino food for the two weeks we were in Manila. It's owned by an interesting Itailan fellow, who, if he is there, will give you a chuckle! Some of the dishes are truly authentic and delicious (risotto being one). Some... More

Bellini's pizza was overloaded with toppings but flavors didn't quite go too well together. Parts of the crust were crunchy while others were too hard. Shrimp and mango salad was overpriced imo though we liked the dressing they used. What we liked best was the mushroom risotto. Flavorful although they could have mixed it even better as the taste was... More

Having travelled to Italy many times I tend to compare with the "real thing", and bellini's is run owned and run by an Italian and the menu is kept fairly authentic. Huge portions, luckily we only ordered one starter to share as if we'd had one each there wouldn't have been much room for the main course! Managed to squeeze... More

I have read about Bellini's and its authentic Italian dishes, but it was only now that I was able to eat there. I came in late for lunch, and that was a Thursday, and the surroundings were pretty deserted. I found that there were only two customers when I visited. I ordered their Ravioli al Tartufo - spinach and ham... More

Bellini's is tucked away in a corner of Cubao Expo (formerly Marikina Shoe Expo), a block or so away from Ali Mall. I've been meaning to try this place for a long time and finally got the chance in March 2014. They did not disappoint. The place is kitschy Italian, the menu is astonishingly diverse. The staff are pleasant and... More

This is a nice place in a small, open-air mall, the Marikina Shoe Expo (show up early and shop for shoes!). I've been here many times. Lots of fresh, home-made pasta by the owner's wife, Ma. Luisa. Not cheap by Manila standards, but very tasty and worth it! I'm used to world-class wine lists so I'm going to say the... More

Eat here before they decide to tear down the place! In between huge construction sites in the Cubao Area. Finally found the Italian pasta Ive been craving for. Pizza crust crunchy; carpaccio manzo very good!; penne arrabiata nice tomato flavor!

Bellini's is an Italian fine-dining restaurant located at Cubao Expo (formerly Marikina Shoe Expo). I love their appetizers and pasta selection (my favorites are seafood pasta and bolognese). Their pizza is thin crust and really tasty. For me, nearly everything is endearing to the palate. For dessert, try their Panna Cotta which is the best that i have tasted so... More

It was my frist time to visit the place and was so excited to try their food. When I entered the resto, I felt like a young kid as their ceilings and walls were painted with Italy's tourist spots. Also it was the resto in my favorite Tagalog movie - One More Chance, where Popoy and Basha's friends tambayan. We... More
